Embarkation was exactly like always....a winding line of smiling (or complaining) travelers, all with happy anticipation. Not too long and you are on board heading for food in one direction or the other. Ship is beautiful and recently ... Read more

I was very disappointed with the cruise! We previously had been on the Oasis for 44 days. The Menu was very limited with NO cold soups and limited salads. Room Service was inconsistent. Sometime good coffee and sometimes sludge. ... Read more

Although the ship has been refurbished handsomely, I found my cruise experience to be below average. I have always felt pampered on the cruises I have sailed on before this one. The small amenities that I have been accustomed to on ... Read more

I went on this cruise as part of a group that owns franchises in Florida. While I never complain about a cruise because I love them so much, the Explorer of the Seas had some flaws. We had a balcony stateroom which was great. Inyoman our ... Read more

We wanted to check out the newly returned ship. We like sailing the smaller/more intimate/classic styled ships and this seemed to fit the bill. The prices were also VERY good. (We booked a Junior Suite for 4 nights for about $550 ... Read more

My husband and I appreciate a "family" atmosphere, even though we have no children. We don't do modern comedy and we don't drink any alcohol. We enjoyed ourselves in the Deck 4 outside seating, when we could find a seat and the ... Read more

We took a Royal Caribbean Alaska cruise about 16 years ago, departing from Vancouver. It was wonderful and especially memorable was the Hubbard Glacier. The ship spent the day there, up close and amazing, and it rotated 1/4 turns every ... Read more

Great value with RC kicking in forth night free. This is a very old ship with a $50 mil. new paint job. The crew is poor even for the budget cruise market. Dining staff is the best, they try but somehow manage to always miss the mark. ... Read more
